Department of Veterinary Biochemistry

Department of Veterinary Biochemistry


The department previously was associated with the Department of Veterinary Physiology. During the 80’s it become a full flagged department. Since the year 2000, there was no permanent faculty member after death of Dr. M. Murtuza. After a very long gap of more than 10 years in 2011, two faculty members’ Dr. Ajeet Kumar and Dr. Anil gattani have been appointed as Assistant Professor in the department. Gradually the facilities in terms of equipment, etc. were procured and other infrastructure was developed, for teaching, research and extension programmes.

The department is predominantly involved in UG and PG teaching of biochemistry. The department has fully developed laboratories for carrying out the research on the biochemical aspects of animal health and production, and is extending these facilities to other departments of the University.
